Press Conference Coverage, Tehran, Iran

News stories covering the Levinson Family’s press conference in Tehran, Iran:

Text from Video Message May 9, 2007

I’m Christine Levinson, wife of Robert Levinson. My children and I set up this website to ask for your help in finding Robert so he can come home.

My husband went missing on March 8th while visiting Kish Island in the Islamic Republic of Iran. Since then, there have been conflicting reports about his condition and whereabouts. There were even reports that he had been released, but they were not true.

This experience has been a nightmare for me and our children. We’ve been living in darkness since this began. We just need to hear from him, to see him, and to help him come home.

We are seeking the truth. Somebody knows where he is.

I’ve reached out to the U.S. Government and the Iranian Government, but nothing has changed.

Two weeks ago, I sent a letter to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as a personal and private plea for help. I don’t know if he received my letter. I’ve included it on this website in English and in Farsi in hopes that he and others who are in a position to help will read it.

I am confident the Iranian Government can use its power and ability to find out what happened to my husband. I am hopeful they can locate him and we can begin the process of bringing him home to be with his family.

In a letter President Ahmadinejad addressed to the American people, he wrote “We are all inclined towards the good, and towards extending a helping hand to one another, particularly to those in need.”

I need your help. Our family needs your help. If anyone has information about my husband and can help find him so he can come home, please contact me at [email protected]. Thank you.
